- What in the temporal structure of speech triggers speech-specific processing
The precise role of cortical oscillations in speech processing is under investigation. According to current research, the phase alignment of Δ/θ-band (2-8 Hz) neural oscillations in the auditory cortex is involved in the segmentation of speech. ...
- Auditory multi-scale Processing
Natural sounds, music, and vocal sounds have a rich temporal structure over multiple timescales, and behaviorally relevant acoustic information is usually carried on more than one timescale. For example, speech conveys linguistic information at ...
